Why The Seller Did Not Buy Your Offer
Home sellers may reject the offer of a buyer at any time for some reasons and this can be very disappointing especially if you have already set your goal on buying a home. This situation can happen anytime and so every homeowner should not feel too confident with their offer because the seller has a different perception when it comes to the worth of the property.
It’s really frustrating to know that what you think was a reasonable offer had been rejected and you are left guessing as to the main reason why your offer was rejected.
Sellers and buyers typically have different expectations when it comes to some terms prior to the home buying transaction. Thus, the seller is more inclined to reject an offer if their needs and expectations are not meet. The closing or moving date and other contingencies are normally some areas where the buyer and the seller don’t see eye to eye when it comes to buying.
Although the words “very low” can mean differently from person to person, the real estate market defines “low” as “ridiculously” low as in a ‘low ball offer’. While some sellers still counter a low ball offer, others stop making any counter offers. So how do you know you have crossed the line of what’s low? This is when the seller stopped making any counter offers and this basically means you have to look for another property and this time no more very low offers.
Have you made up your mind yet? Don’t be too emotionally attached to a home you just have seen and then start the negotiation with a low-ball offer. Start the home buying process right now by knowing everything you can. Remember you have the control over how much you pay and what kind of investment you’ll get into, but also don’t forget the seller is still in control whether you get the home or not.
